The leadership of Corvinus University of Budapest has decided to establish the Corvinus Institute for Advanced Studies – Central Europe in Global Context. The establishment of CIAS aims to reach a higher level of the University’s research performance and significantly improve its international potential. CIAS has been established in affiliation with Corvinus University of Budapest. CIAS provides research fellowships for scholars with outstanding credentials. The fundamental goal is to create an inspiring and creative intellectual community. Scholarships are granted in a process based on thematic calls for application, this contributes to CIAS’ own intellectual profile that is in harmony with the goals of Budapest, Hungary and Central Europe.
CIAS provides research fellowships for scholars with outstanding credentials in the following grant categories:
invited distinguished research fellow,
senior (faculty) research fellow,
junior (faculty) research fellow.
The operation of CIAS is based on „centres” and projects.
The first such centre in operation is the Social Futuring Centre of Corvinus University which was founded in February 2017 to implement the research project „ConNext 2050” working on developing a Social Futuring Index – SFI. Other centres will be established around research themes of the seven doctoral schools of the University (International Relations Multidisciplinary Doctoral School, Doctoral School of Political Science, Doctoral School of Sociology, Doctoral School of Social Communication, Doctoral School of Business Informatics, Doctoral School of General and Quantitative Economics, Doctoral School of Business and Management) which are the key areas of the research activities of Corvinus University.
